4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle (bottled 10/8/13) poured into a tulip. Pours a clear straw yellow with a finger off-white head. Nice lacing for a pils. Good carbonation streaming up the glass. Smells of lemon/lime citrus, wheat, hay/barnyard. Tastes of lemon/lime citrus, piney hops, grassy, lager yeast, herbs, spices. Light body but not quite thin.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Appearance: pours bright clear yellow gold with a modest sized tight white head.
Aroma: Big grassy Euro hop nose, biscuits and a touch floral.
Taste: Mixture of grassy herbal and spicy hops. Very dry pale malt. Bready. Mouth slapping twang finishes with sharp clean bitterness. That twang brings you back quickly for the next sip (or gulp.)
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with average carbonation, not too rough for a pils.
Overall: Great googly moogly! So drinkable, so tasty, just clean sturdy crisp beer. I’ve been sucking back Firestone’s pale offerings for years now with great joy, and am glad they’ve mixed it up with less sweet malt and Euro hops to break away from Pale 31/Union/Double Jack. You may have a person in your life who is leery about jumping into craft beer, this might just be the beer that converts them.

Nice and light, but not light on flavor. The little hops kick works really well with this pilsner and I can see this one working it’s way into my summer rotation. Here’s how it looked: http://teamchug.com/?p=824

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. bottle poured to a fest goblet, displaying a clear golden, almost straw color, with a presentable layer of white, bubbly head froth, and waves & spots of lacing. The aroma was a light Pils/lager nose, with light grain, and subtle spiciness. The flavor presented a moderate hop bitterness that was earthy & dry, with some lingering qualities. Light bodied, with lively effervescence that highlighted the hop, and some subtle citrus & zestiness that combined with the dryness to produce a nicely clean & crisp finish. A very appealing, palate awakening Pils.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Kind of scary to look at, as so many straw-colored, crystal-clear pilsners are so awfully mediocre. Smells bread and vaguely of German lager yeasts, just a hint more spicy in odor than most pilsners. Taste is clean and uncomplicated: smooth grain, a hint of sweet malt, and a grassy hop kiss. Nice and light on the palate like it should be. A really nice, uncluttered and non-skanky pils that one could drink all afternoon on a hot day (though I write this in the dead of winter). Makes my list of 10 best pilsners.
